When faced with large crowds of people, or unfamiliar situations I often find myself wishing that I smoked. Not because I want to take up smoking, just because that is a socially acceptable excuse to pop outside by yourself for 5 or 10 minutes. Sometimes crowds and people are just too much.
“I’m just going out to be alone – back in 5” doesn’t seem to have the same effect.
Today though, enough people at work know I take pictures that I had the “I need to take a shot be back in a bit” reason.
